Sean Horton opens contemporary art gallery in Dallas

Sean Horton and Horton Gallery are pleased to announce a new gallery in Dallas, Texas, scheduled to open in the Fall.  Occupying a storefront on West Jefferson Boulevard in Dallas’ Oak Cliff neighborhood, the new space will be known as Sean Horton (presents) and will primarily focus on bringing the work of nationally and internationally established artists, as well as emerging figures, to North Texas audiences.

Regarded as one of Dallas’ most important examples of Mission Revival architecture, the former Mallory’s Pharmacy building, and one-time site of Briggs Sanatorium, has served as artists’ lofts in most recent years.  “I hope to spark a dialogue with the visual landscape of the neighborhood while continuing to cultivate the gallery’s international audience,” Horton says.  “As a native Texan from the area, I feel that this opportunity represents a homecoming to a city where, in my early twenties, I first discovered contemporary art.”

Horton opened his first gallery location, Sunday L.E.S., as a project space in an abandoned sneaker shop on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in 2006.  One of the earliest art galleries in the neighborhood, Horton Gallery, under several names, has since operated in the Chelsea, Chinatown, and Rose Hill neighborhoods of New York City, as well as the Kreuzberg neighborhood of Berlin.  The gallery has realized more than 150 exhibitions, art fairs, and offsite projects in a variety of interesting spaces and contexts that include an old brewery and the parlor level of a residential townhouse.

Horton is known for discovering and launching the careers of emerging artists, and Horton Gallery presented the New York solo debuts of Michael Berryhill, Elijah Burgher, Leidy Churchman, Keltie Ferris, Kate Groobey, and Kirk Hayes.  Widely reviewed gallery exhibitions have also included those by Trudy Benson, Peter Gallo, Clare Grill, Michael Jones McKean, Natasza Niedziolka, and Aaron Spangler.  In addition, Horton has exhibited outsider artists Gayleen Aiken, David Byrd, Royal Robertson, and Miroslav Tichý, as well as artwork by notable indie musicians Joel Gibb and G.B. Jones.

In Berlin, Horton hosted the European premiere of A.L. Steiner and A.K. Burns‘ film Community Action Center and presented group exhibitions featuring Joanne Greenbaum, Ella Kruglyanskaya, Orion Martin, Ryan McLaughlin, Anne Neukamp, and Daniel Rios Rodriguez.  Horton Gallery has been a member of the New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) since 2008 and has participated in NADA Miami, NADA New York, The Armory Show, Art Brussels, and the Untitled Art Fair, among others.

In addition to the new Dallas location, Horton Gallery will continue to maintain an office in New York for private sales, advisory services, and collections management.  Horton will also produce a series of pop-up exhibitions in temporary locations in New York while continuing to participate in selected international art fairs.
